Dakis Joannou's 'Guilty' Yacht by Jeff Koons and Ivana Porfiri

Dakis Joannou, a wealthy Greek-Cypriot industrialist and contemporary art collector, recently tapped artist Jeff Koons and yacht designer Ivana Porfiri to design an art-centric yacht. At 115 feet long, Guilty is Koons’ biggest piece and features a bright geometric exterior pattern modeled after the “razzle dazzle” camo used by the British Royal Navy during World War I. The pattern on the sides is meant to play on the idea of pyramids and mirages, and on top is a larger-than-life image of Iggy Pop as a “contemporary Dionysus.” Serving as a counterpoint to the bright exterior, the interior is dominated by white surfaces and natural light, and serves to showcase Joannou’s extensive collection of art. Check out the images of “Guilty” above.
